12. I agree with you completely on this. All except Lieberman...
We have a lot of non-productive rabble-rousing on the left where we should have unity and commons sense. It's like the old adage: "If your're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem."

Too often self-interest always defeats the goal for the common good. The left might have some egalitarian ideals, but in practice, too many turn into something like K0S, who is so pumped up on his self-importance, that he loses as many opportunities for liberals as he creates.

Yes, I noticed Hagel's dissing of the partisan mud-slinging. That was refreshing. Some integrity there. Amazing.

Lieberman gets a lot of animosity directed at him. I'm not a Lieberman hater. You are right: he's still a Dem and he does fight for many liberal causes, but we can do better. He's like the old war horse that is no longer able to stand up in battle. Time to retire the good senator. He's not doing us or himself much service. Sen. Byrd for all his years has more fight than Joe. The sad thing is, I think Joe is taking the easy way out. His principles, if he were being totally honest, are capitulations. He's swaying because he doesn't have the backbone to stand tall. Saddest of all, I don't think he realizes it.

Off to K0S.
